Duffy Bishop is a force of nature. A powerful blues blaster, a sultry soul singer, a presence who connects with her audience in a deeply personal way be it in an intimate club or huge festival.
Based in Portland, Oregon and St. Augustine, Florida, Duffy is in the Cascade Blues Association and Washington Blues Society Hall Of Fame, and a recipient of both organizations’ Lifetime Achievement Award. She has won the CBA’s Female Vocalist Award so many years in a row that they renamed it the Duffy Bishop Female Vocalist Award.
The Duffy Bishop Band was named one of the Top Ten Influential Bands in The Northwest by the News/Media Website FDRMX.
With her long-time collaborator, guitarist and husband Chris Carlson, they have played venues across the USA, Canada, Norway, Japan, Hong Kong, and Austria.
“Who Is Duffy Bishop And Why Is She Not World Famous?” a documentary on her life, was released in 2010.
